Totem Collection

About this project

This collection began with a desire to reflect movement of the spinal column; bones gave way to primal forms that have symbolic resonance, hence the name of the collection. Through experiments with new technologies the forms have evolved to reflect these new processes that enhance rather than replace the traditional jewellery techniques.
